This retreat offers you the opportunity to deepen your understanding of your body and your relationship with a changing life from two different yet complementary perspectives: the medical and the energetic.
As women we start to change in the run-up and during our menopausal years and it is important to us that we age in a physically healthy and emotionally balanced way. Though I am at the beginning stages of this unfolding, I work with many women of all ages and I love the raw wildness of change and the discerning quality that is refining within woman as the body starts to change and re-direct its inner focus.
It is time for us to know and say yes to what we need, we have to take life’s nourishment, it is time to listen to our inner knowing as we can no longer avoid its voice! I will be bringing to this retreat what I have found to work for a changing sexual appetite, how to stay vital in our sensual energy, set goals, take rest and play.

Poala is a qualified Pilates instructor and teacher of The Feldenkrais Method, a somatic form of movement based on principles of physics, neurology and physiology to relieve restricted movement and chronic pain and improve posture and flexibility.
Poala teaches Awareness Through Movement (ATM) mat classes that focus on sensing, resting and moving to engage the whole body, allowing it to replace old habits with new awareness and function. Her one-on-one Functional Integration (FI) work, with specific yet gentle manipulation reorganises the body to treat minor aches to serious muscular skeletal issues.

Lucinda’s Yuva Face Massage, is a natural facelift technique focussing on touch and intention. She uses her fingers and palms in a gentle rhythm, with special attention on acupressure points, to release tension in the muscles and connective skin tissue.
Yuva (‘youthful’ in Hindi) stimulates blood and energy flow to brighten the complexion, exfoliate skin cells and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. This external glow is mirrored by an inner radiance due to the emotionally balancing effects of the treatment for relieving stress, lifting your spirit and calming your mind.
Lucinda is accredited by the Complementary Medical Association (UK) and continues to add nurturing elements to her ever-evolving facial ‘magic’.
